Larian Studios announced today the Enhanced Edition for its RPG, Divinity: Original Sin. While this Enhanced Edition will be completely free to everyone who owns Original Sin, Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition is described as a new game and your saves won’t be compatible with this new version.
Here are the game’s new key features:
- All characters are now fully voiced by AAA-voice actors
- New quests, new characters, and new content
- Entirely new gameplay modes and character builds
- A heavily rewritten story with a brand new ending
- Massively reworked visuals and sound effects
- And much more to be announced in the coming months
As said, Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition is advertised as a completely separate game and not an update to Divinity: Original Sin.
“Both games will remain available on PC and Mac, and it is important to note that they are totally different entities, so if you’ve already bought Original Sin you’ll see separate listings for Divinity: Original Sin and Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition in your Steam Library. This means that saved games can’t be transferred from Divinity: Original Sin to the Enhanced Edition. This is largely because of the technical changes we’ve made to how the game looks and feels, but the story has also been rewritten so heavily that most saved games would no longer be compatible with the plot.”
Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition will require a 64-bit system and a graphics card with DirectX 11 hardware support. Those that do not meet these requirements, however, will be able to continue playing the original version of Divinity: Original Sin (that requires a 32-bit operating system and a DirectX 9 graphics card).
There is no ETA yet for this Enhanced Edition of Divinity: Original Sin, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
